French voice

I've found that the voice for french speaks certain words very strangely. For example, "écris" sounds like "efris". Not sure if anything can be done about that, but thought I'd point it out.

You guys should explain that on the feedback, I've used it a couple to show wrong answers that were actually right, since they're in beta, I think they'll appreciate...

Let's hope it gets fixed when beta testing is over...

Yep, and also "lettre" which is said like "litre". Can be confusing.

I had the same problem with Jean (jeans) which sounded like in I think the Spanish is much clearer.

I've noticed that when the pronunciation sounds wrong, the slow version often sounds correct.

The french (ßeta) text-to-voice does seem pretty bad.
